When Is It Time To Replace Your Windows?
Windows do more than just let the light in – they also help keep your home secure, insulated, and looking great. Check out these tips to know when it’s time to replace your windows.
They’re Actually Broken
Your windows help keep your home safe from unwanted guests, both large and small. If your windows are broken beyond repair, replace them as soon as possible to keep your home secure. JEH Windows & Doors can help determine if a damaged window can be repaired, or if it needs to be replaced.
Your Energy Bill Is High
Windows are an important part of your home’s ventilation system, and replacing them can help make your home more energy-efficient. Keep the warm air where you want it by replacing drafty windows, and enjoy saving on your next energy bill.
Not sure if your home is drafty? Turn off any fans to avoid a breeze in your home, and carefully hold a lit candle near the seams of your windows and doors. If the flame is flickering, then you’ve got air flowing where you don’t want it. JEH Windows & Doors are designed with a double neoprene bulb seal to keep your home airtight!
You Notice Frost Or Condensation
Condensation occurs when warm air inside your home meets the cold glass on your windows. If condensation has built up between the window panes, the seal is broken and it’s time to have your windows replaced. Too much condensation build-up can lead to mould in your window frames, so it’s best to replace your windows as soon as possible.
They’re Looking Worse For Wear
If eyes are the windows to the soul, does that mean that windows show off the soul of your home? Worn out windows can reduce your home’s curb appeal, and turn away potential buyers. Peeling paint, warped frames, and decaying wood are all signs that your windows need to be replaced.
If you’re planning some home renovations this spring, consider how your windows will blend with the new space. Add more light with a large picture window, improve ventilation with an awning window, or add a crisp, modern touch with new casement windows. No matter what style you choose, when you work with JEH Windows & Doors, you’re getting quality that lasts.
